Benefits:

Featuring your books directly within your mobile app allows your users to get an in-depth, feature rich experience of your books before they buy. You can include PDF downloads for sample chapters, video trailers (or any other videos) and audio MP3’s so they can listen to whatever you want to share about your books.

List Building

Grow your email list directly from your mobile app using embedded HTML forms. Works with any email marketing system that supports embedded forms: ActiveCampaign, Aweber, GetResponse, Drip, MailChimp, etc.

Benefits:

Open up a whole new world of readers via the app marketplaces on Apple’s App Store, Google Play and the Amazon App Store. As new users join your email list you can “tag” them so you can track exactly who (and how many users) are coming from your mobile app.

Launch / Street Team

Run your launch team directly through your mobile app with a private Login area just for them.

Benefits:

Never worry about your launch team missing your Facebook posts or your emails getting lost in their spam folder. Your mobile app can be your command center for running your book launch. Your team participants can receive your ARC’s in Epub or PDF format, they can ask questions, receive promotional materials like graphics, videos and audios, they can give you feedback on cover designs and much more.

Push Notifications

Also known as Announcements, Push Notifications allows you to send messages directly to the users of your mobile app.

Push Notifications allow you to keep in touch with your readers and fans and reach them wherever they are, instantly on their mobile device. Using custom Notification Types, you can segment your messages to specific groups of users too.

App Share

Your app users are able to share your app via Facebook and email.

Benefits:

Spreading the word about your mobile app is one of the best ways to grow your author platform. Getting your avid readers and biggest fans to do it for you is even better!

Glossary

Your app users can quickly see definitions and backgrounds for terms and characters that appear in your books.

Benefits:

If you are a Fiction author you can create a list of characters, list of places, list of holidays and festivals or any other items that need defining that provide a richer experience for your readers.

If you are a Non-fiction author you can include definitions of terms used, an index of places referenced and any other dictionary-like data that would benefit your readers.

Epub Documents

You can distribute epub documents directly to your mobile app users which they can read right on their mobile devices. For Apple devices a built-in epub reader is also included.

Benefits:

Reward your biggest fans, publish short stories or novellas, or just simply sell special epub documents directly to your readers. You can even lock your epubs behind a password protected login so only your most loyal fans can get access.

Benefits:

Attract new listeners to your podcast or start a podcast and bring a whole new dimension to your author platform. In addition to podcast episodes, you can stream any MP3 audio, including audio versions of your books, novellas or even personal messages to your fans.
